Eurovision did the right thing

They barred display of the PLO flag. Naturally, the PLO threw a fit about it:
The decision by European broadcasters to ban any display of Palestinian flags during the upcoming Eurovision song contest next month in Sweden provoked outrage in Ramallah.

Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian Authority’s top peace negotiator who recently assumed the post of secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, slammed the decision.

In a letter to the European Broadcasting Union, the body in charge of producing the show, Erekat said that the decision to bar the colors of the PLO was “discriminatory and a serious offense against our nation.”
What "nation" is he talking about? Only one he wants everyone to believe exists. The Eurovision board is doing the right thing to leave their distasteful flag out of the year's contest, because not only would it be legitimizing a terror outfit, it would also be politicizing the whole convention. This time, they've acted wisely and didn't associate themselves with a monster.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
